First day of our trip and pinching ourselves. Will be traveling with our longtime friends Ben and Maureen Judkins for the next couple of months. Spent this afternoon exploring bicycle trails and hiking to see the two waterfalls in the park. Took Molly on the hike with us and she loved swimming in the waterfall pool.
